Our mailing list

When you place an order you will be asked if you would like your name and email address to be added to our mailing list. This is not a pre-ticked box. If you opt to join our mailing list we’ll only use your details to tell you about our selected contemporary craft industry news, any special offers we run, the makers and products on our website, carefully selected craft events, or any changes to our site. We may also contact you to check you are happy to keep receiving our e-news. You can unsubscribe at any time by contacting us or following the unsubscribe links. There is one at the top and one at the bottom of our newsletter.

We use a third party provider called MailChimp to deliver our e-newsletter. These emails are sent to our subscribers no more than twice a month, and mostly only once a month. MailChimp is a secure system which is password protected. The system collects statistics around email opening and click-throughs using industry standard technologies and we use this to help us monitor and improve the content of our e-news and website.

You are free to unsubscribe at any time and have your details removed from our records. You are only ever added to the mailing list for marketing purposes if you yourself have signed up via the newsletter tab. You will not be automatically placed on a marketing list because you have made a purchase.
